“Spinal Cord Injury in Nepal and Challenges in Rehabilitation”

Damodar “Damo” traveled all the way from Nepal to attend his first Working 2 Walk Symposium last year in Rockville, MD. He graduated as a physical therapist from Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences in India, and has since dedicated his work to serving people living with spinal cord injury in his homeland of Nepal. In addition to his work at the Rehabilitation Centre, Damo is the core resource person for earthquake disaster and preparedness in case of a mass casualty scenario. Damo will share with us the realities of life with SCI in his country, and some of the techniques and strategies he uses to maximize functional outcomes with his clients.
